donors be compensated just like doctors. >> there's no restrictions on how much they can bring in but the donor, she should only be making this much. >> we try do it to protect women to keep women from being induced to something they wouldn't otherwise do. we are being accused of price fixing. >> reporter: lynn hong is satisfied with the $15,000 she made for two donations. they helped pay for her college expenses and another cycle will fund postgraduate art courses. besides, she did this to help two couples who couldn't have children on their own. >> i don't really plan to have children of my own. but hey, i just fulfilled my evolutionary quota.
